The Gap Art Club
A RELAXED ART GROUP FOR CREATIVE PEOPLE
About The Gap Art Club
We are a friendly art club, based in Goring-on-Thames where we meet fortnightly on Wednesday afternoons. You can work on a group subject matter, or on your own art or project, in a pleasant and social environment, where we encourage each other and share techniques. Just bring your own subject matter and materials. We warmly welcome any level of art enthusiast to our sessions.
Tutor Led Sessions
Some sessions are led by tutors from a variety of backgrounds, helping us explore new techniques and styles and giving encouragement and guidance to those who are more experienced. See below for some of the tutor led sessions we have had so far and those to come.
